I had sent a letter into Butlin's about this lovely lady who spent the time to entertain my Sophie. Rather than push for sales, this lovely member of staff went out of their way to show my children an alternative entertainment. Sophie loved every moment making me feel that she should be praised. I got feedback to say that she received reward for an excellent and memorable service.
